The Olivewood Golf Course

Golf Course at Olivewood Estate

Forming the focal point of the estate is our 18-hole championship golf course that was developed prior to our launch. The natural shape of the landscape was not altered during the formation of this unique course and hole locations were determined by the contours and ridges of the earth.

The course utilises the Eastern Cape’s characteristic rolling hills, meadows and deep, forested gullies. From its highest point, the fairways meander down to the river plain and tidal lagoon, after which they route back up the hill to the 18th hole and our magnificent clubhouse.

Fairways

Our immaculately manicured kikuyu fairways provide a superb shot-making surface whilst creating a green parkland effect.

A selection of well-thought-out tee positions, bunkers and water hazards ensure that golfers of all levels are presented with a worthy challenge. The rough has been kept relatively short, while long bushveld grass on the outskirts awaits any errant shots.

Our advanced drainage system ensures the course provides a pleasant golfing experience throughout the year.

Greens

Our A1/A4 bent grass greens (rated as the best putting surface in the world) contain subtle breaks but always putt well. When the wind blows, they offer an exciting challenge, even to advanced golfers.

Our signature hole

We encourage you to come and test your skills on our signature 15th hole. Measuring 128 m from the club tees, the par three is an interesting short hole that presents the player with a challenging tee shot. With a selection of tee boxes available, the shot needs to extend over dense bush to reach a green situated on the other side. The green is guarded by two bunkers and slopes from back to front, so smart play is to keep the ball below the hole.  Club selection is key on this hole, especially when the prevailing east wind blows.

We are open from Tuesday to Sunday every week.
